The storage of bed material in mountain stream channels as assessed using Optically Stimulated Luminescence dating

Thompson, Chris; Rhodes, Edward; Croke, Jacky


A detailed understanding of channel forming and maintenance processes in mountain streams requires some measurement and/or prediction of bed load transport and sediment mobility. Traditional field based measurements of such processes are problematic because of the high formative discharges characteristic of such streams. The application of Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating is proposed here as a new way of determining actual residency times of fine sediments and consequently...[Show more]
